GALION, Ohio (AP) – Authorities in north-central Ohio say a man with young children was arrested after he admitted firing gunshots into the ground as a vehicle passed because he was angry that drivers were speeding along his road.

Richland County Sheriff’s Sgt. Rich Eichinger tells the Mansfield News Journal someone reported to 911 on Wednesday night that an armed man was firing gunshots near a road in Galion, about 55 miles north of Columbus. No one was hurt.

The newspaper says the 26-year-old man was charged with aggravated menacing and was taken to the Richland County jail. His name wasn’t immediately released.

The sheriff’s department seized the handgun and five knives.
